February 28th-5th March 2019

2. Swimming pool & mountains

Join us in the beautiful Atlas Mountains for a 6 day deep dive in to yoga. Immerse yourself into the physical and spiritual practice of yoga, whilst also experiencing the real Morocco first hand. We will meditate to ground ourselves daily, practice vinyasa yoga to move the body and practice breathing exercises (pranayama) to help us calm the mind and de-stress. Guided walks into the mountains will help us to re-connect with nature and experience local culture and delicious long meals will feed us with nourishment. With the intention that you will leave feeling revitalized, inspired and balanced.

What to expect from the retreat

LOCATION

Join us for 5 nights at the beautiful boutique hotel Kasbah Angour. Situated at 1000m altitude the berber castle sits on top of a hill offering incredible views of the surrounding mountains. Just 35 minutes from Marrakech the location provides fresh mountain air and a very peaceful environment.

YOGA

The day will consist of two 90 minute yoga classes. Beginning the day with a dynamic vinyasa sequence and ending with a more playful, explorative/restorative yoga practice.

Alongside the physical practice, guests can experience pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation.

Ro teaches Quantum Yoga which is a system of personal practice and optimization that uses vinyasa flow and Ayurvedic assessment. As Quantum physics itself has proven, any activity done with greater awareness has a more powerful transformative effect.

By bringing your attention into the the body-mind, by the use of Ayurveda (Yoga’s “sister science” which recognizes your individual nature and helps find your true path on this earth), Ro’s classes leave you more harmonious, healthy, happy and in true balance with yourself and the now.

Each guest will be invited to find out their true nature or ‘Prakriti’ by doing an aryuvedic assessment at the beginning of the retreat. You will be encouraged to become more present and aware, thus allowing you to get the most out of your practice during the retreat and later during your yoga practice at home.

All practices are open to all levels from beginners to more advanced yogis.

The house is just ten minutes south from the unspoilt World Heritage town of Noto – one of Italy’s most beautiful historic centres. A ten minutes drive east is the Nature Reserve of Vendicari, a heaven of wildlife and some of the island’s most beautiful and deserted golden-sand beaches.

RETREAT TESTIMONIALS

“I’ve practiced yoga for many years & Ro has got the balance of strength + relaxation for both mind & body spot on.I first practiced in Ro’s class in the Sky Garden & instantly felt connected with her. When she mentioned she was holding a retreat in Sri Lanka, I knew I had to go. I wasn’t disappointed.
The retreat is carefully planned so that the daily yoga sessions compliment the additional activities/free time perfectly.
Camp Poe is beautiful & the wildlife absolutely amazing, you’re basically sleeping under the stars with all the animals, eating tasty, fresh and different food. It’s a real adventure.
By the end of the trip you’ve made new yogi friends, captured breath taking photos, mixed with the locals and lived a true Sri Lankan experience.”

Naomi 2018, UK

 

“I am not a hardened Yogi but nevertheless I put my ageing aching body in the hand of Yoga Ro and I was not disappointed. Each session she skilfully and sympathetically in my case put us through our paces and I felt better for it.
This was all set in the jungle location of Camp Poe in Sri Lanka where we were brilliantly looked after by Ben and his staff. The jungle was tangible but the facilities blended in sympathetically providing a comfortable and unforgettable experience. In between yoga sessions we elected to surf the warm Indian Ocean waters on a daily basis, board shorts only and waves for everyone.
I highly recommend Yoga Ro”

Nick 2018, UK

 

“This amazing retreat provided an intensified focus on yoga, allowing me to deepen my practice and understanding. Sally-Anne and Roanna are attentive, supportive and caring instructors who gently nudged me to grow and develop confidence in my abilities.  I highly recommend their well-run retreats!”

Robin 2018, US

“Ro’s Sri Lanka retreat genuinely changed my life. Having never travelled to East Asia before, it allowed me a completely different view of the world.The sporting activities that had been arranged such as sunrise paddle boarding in the most exotic, beautiful location imaginable and surfing the incredible waves of Sri Lanka’s south coast were moments that I’ll never forget.

Incredibly, Ro was able to teach a different yoga class for each morning and evening we were there. I have been practicing yoga on and off for around a year now and I was able to see more improvement in strength, flexibility and understanding in the week’s retreat than through any other amount of time practicing. Ro would always take the time to explain every aspect of the session that was unclear and help each person develop more complex moves such as hand stands and head stands in the safest and most effective way. All of the experiences combined along with the meditative and spiritual elements of the trip allowed me to develop as much mentally and spiritually as I did physically.”

George 2017, London
